HOW TO ACCESS NAPLES FERRY PORT FROM CENTRAL RAILWAY STATION
- To reach the port at Molo Beverello from Stazione Centrale, you should first buy bus tickets from a kiosk in the station. A single ticket costs approx. 1,00 Euro. The R2 bus departs from the far end of Piazza Garibaldi, in the center of the traffic (past the rows of other buses). The journey takes about 10-15 minutes depending on traffic. You should alight by Piazza Municipio. The ferry terminal is located at the bottom end of the square (on your left). Returning from the ferry port to the Central Station, you can take tram number 1, which stops in the middle of the road by the port, or you can head uphill over the grassy area by the castle towards a row of pines to reach the R2 stop.
FROM NAPLES CITY TO THE PORT BY TAXI
- Piazza Garibaldi and Napoli Centrale isn’t just a major hub for city buses, they’re also a big stop for the city taxis. It seems there’s a long taxi queue in front of the station all the time, so if you want to hop in a cab it’s easy to get one as soon as you walk out of the station. As mentioned above, you want to make absolutely sure the taxi has a working meter and a posted list of the fixed fares, or you run the risk of it being an illegal taxi that might ask for an exorbitant rate. The fixed rates to the port from the train station can and do change, but at the moment it’s approx. 11,00-15,00 Euro one-way. You must tell the driver you want this fixed rate before you get into the taxi.
FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE FERRY PORT OF NAPLES
- From Naples Capodichino Airport simply catch the Alibus service outside the airport (roughly every twenty minutes), buy a 3,00 Euro ticket from the driver and you'll be at Piazza Municipio, the bus stop for the Molo Beverello port, in around twenty minutes, transport permitting. This direct bus service has one intermediate stop, at the railway station. Alight at the end of the route, by the fortress known as the Maschio Angioino, and walk down towards the port, taking a path just to the left of the castle. The port is just a couple of minutes' walk downhill. Cross the big road, walk a short distance to your right and you'll be alongside the ticket offices for ferries.
- Free shuttle bus service operates from 06:00 am until midnight.

The written history of the Naples (Italian Napoli) starts in the seventh century BC when the adjacent Greek settlement of Cumae established another city called Parthenope. Cumae itself had been established by individuals from Euboea. Correctly why the tenants of Cumae chose to extend isn't known for certain, however the Cumaeans assembled Neapolis (the "New City") nearby the old Parthenope. At about a similar time, they had averted an intrusion endeavor by the Etruscans. The new city developed because of the impact of the great Greek city-province of Syracuse in Sicily and sooner or later the new and old urban areas on the Gulf of Naples converged to end up a solitary occupied core.
Naples turned into a partner of the Roman Republic against Carthage. The solid dividers of Naples held off Hannibal. Amid the Samnite Wars, the city, now a clamoring focal point of exchange, was caught by the Samnites. In any case, the Romans before long took it from them and made Neapolis a Roman settlement. Neapolis was significantly regarded by the Romans as a position of Hellenistic culture. The general population kept up their Greek dialect and traditions, and rich estates, water channels, open showers, a theater and the Temple of Dioscures were assembled. Various Roman rulers, including Claudius and Tiberius, kept up manors in or close Naples. It was amid this period that Christianity came to Naples, and the Apostles St. Diminish and St. Paul are said to have lectured here. St. Januarius, who might turn into Naples' supporter holy person, was martyred here.
